"Born of Frustration" is a 1992 song written by Jim Glennie, Larry Gott, Tim Booth and released as a single by popular UK group James. It is the follow-up to 1991 hits "Sit Down" (which was a re-release of a 1989 single that flopped) and "Sound", which both peaked in the UK Top 10. This song is taken from the group's fourth album Seven and reached number 13 in the UK.

The song was also a hit on US Alternative radio, peaking at #5 on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart.[1] It was the group's highest chart placement to that point, until Laid made it to #3 the following year.

The song's use in an advertisement for the American hotel chain Westin Hotels would later help the band pay off a debt owed to their record company.
